3-25 Weightless



Medicare man, grunting 185 lbs. five reps,

with cast-iron plates big as manhole covers.


It’s all about weight. Not bad, he thinks she thinks

except for the head with more hair


spiking from his ears than on top, sea urchin colonies?

and his turkey wattle, a white-water balloon,


but her magnanimous smile

launches him into zero gravity.
